Fast Five (2011)
Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller
Ok so I will start of by mentioning that I have not seen any of the Fast & Furious films yet and this was the first one I have seen in full. I will admit it was okay and entertaining enough. There was plenty of action, explosions and everything you would imagine being in an action packed film 😛 ! The acting was okay (I believed in the characters) though Dwayne Johnson out acted all that where there 😛 . The beginning was really good and I felt like I didn’t have to know the previous films to understand what was going on. That I can give it credit for, but it is not enough to save this film. It was just so boring. Where I was interested at the beginning, I got bored stayed bored until the end half. The end half with the “safe” chase was interesting and I liked it when the two forces joined together (trying not to spoil 😛 ). I think the middle got boring because even though I believed in the characters I felt nothing for them. I guess people who like this film’s franchise will enjoy it but it wasn’t my cup of tea. Maybe the previous films or the ones after make this series great? I guess we will have to see. Enjoy 🙂 .
I give this film 2 Stars out of 5!
